Action Biker

Under the project "Action Biker" named after the C64/Atari game, Swedish electro pop chanteuse Sarah Nyberg Pergament makes lustrous music self described as "baroque on synths". Raised by both classical schooled musicians as parents, her musical interests hampered and flourished along with her notable influences and musical similarities to Young Marble Giants, Broadcast, Francoise Hardy, Saint Etienne, Stereolab and The Human League; for creating the basis of her textured synths, tapping drum machines and lush vocals in assembling this dreamy, wistful analogue drone. Her debut album titled Hesperian Puisto, takes its name after a park in Helsinki, Finland; as it coos and echoes the disperse of Spring with its gleaming, indolent, soft but soaring and rippling casio beats enveloped in its lonely dreams and sweet self indulgence of warmth and comfort. One my favourites of this year so far, the album was released a little over a month ago through Friendly Noise Records.
